Nice flat stroll out to some interesting volcanic spires caused by erosion that look similar to the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon... maybe worth a stop if you have 30-45 minutes to spare. TH is at the end of Pinnacles Spur Road, 7 miles south of Phantom Ship Overlook/7 miles from Steele Info Ctr.

Short, easy trail. Nice views of pinnacles. Keep an eye on toddlers! May be an opportunity for some notable photography at dawn and dusk.

Nice, wooded trail that winds through wet bottom area with reasonably gentle incline toward the Fall. Much insect life to observe such as a myriad of butterflies and very large, black beetles. This is a great trail for curious, little kids! Trail is maintained well by the park and appears to be weathering constant use. It is not a lightly-trafficked trail. The Fall attracts plenty of visitors, and rightly so. Large and refreshing in late summer, it's a beautiful jewel in the Crater Lake crown.

Excellent late summer hike even with wildfire smoke. Moderate rating but easy for seasoned hikers with a mostly level trail and gradual incline. Energetic school-aged kiddos could do this trail. Interesting flora if little fauna. Beautiful views and a diversity of colorful minerals to see. Wildfire tower was locked up but USGS medallion was easy to locate. I didn't see one human soul on this hike in mid-August. Surprising.

Beautiful hike located within Crater Lake National Park. Excellent views of the entire lake. You can see Diamond Lake and Mt. Thielsen off in the distance.

Amazing hike. Incredible views on the way down, a bit strenuous on the way back up. Make sure you cliff jump into the lake! Absolutely recommend.

Hiked this trail because it's only official access to Crater Lake I'm aware of. The boat tours, light fishing and swimming in its very cold water. Trail is switchback from parking down to waters edge. Flat surface but steep inclines even with switchbacks.

Amazing hike! Somewhat intense but doable climb.

Beautiful views. Don't forget this is in the national park, so being $15 to get in the park. It was cold and windy at the trailhead and sunny and warm during the hike and at the top. Not hard, gradual incline up. Took me 45 mins to get to the top with a steady pace. Highly recommend!

loved the trail. We were the first ones to hike it the morning of 10/8/2017. we started at 9:55am. It was cold and there was fresh snow on the ground. the trail is easy and well defined. The views are amazing from the top.

Steep hike but easy! Beginning of it is all just heading down to the shore. Once you get there, there will be a spectacular up close view of the deepest and clearest lake in America! Play in it! Then hike back up and that's it

Very easy trail. Anyone can do it! Just walk along the path to get awesome views of the pinnacles.

Absolutely worth the climb! Get a shot of the USGS markers as proof you made it to the top.

Stunning!

Steep. Loved it.

Windy for the first mile. Great views from the entire trail.

Amazing views, the smoke was almost gone. We even got the chance to jump from a cliff, don't forget your swimming suit, even though the water was a bit cold, it was an amazing experience. Also it will refresh you before your way up!

Well maintained trail that leads down to the lake access point. Has a good jumping rock and the water is crystal clear and great for swimming. Super barefoot friendly!

Easy walk with beautiful views!

Beautiful Trail, liked it!

A must-do hike in Crater Lake Nat'l Park! Prepare to move a little slower than usual due to the elevation, but slow and steady and should be no problem. Hiked to the top of Mt Scott in July 2016 around the Independence Day holiday, and it was still cold up at the top even in the summer (bring gloves, jacket and hat if you plan to hang out at the top). Snow could still be seen in spots throughout the park but wasn't an issue on the trail. Trail is well groomed, and the top offers a panoramic view that you won't be able to get anywhere else in the park. Afterwards, and not too far away, is Umpqua Hot Springs, if you're up for a soak in a natural hot spring. Beware - Issues this Summer (2017) with wildfires, so do your research before going.

Nice, short trail. Switchbacks. Great views of the lake. There are bathrooms available and places to sit and admire the views. Boat deck is at the bottom of the trail and boats leave from there. From here you can swim in the lake. The water is about 50 degrees F in August.
